  Peradeniya Sation
by PierreZA

I used the train from Kandy to Bandarawela.
I went to Kandy Train Station 2 days before the trip to book a ticket in 1st class. There were no seats. The problem now is that you cannot pre-book on these trains for 2nd or 3rd class from Kandy to the Hill Country (Badulla line).

The driver took me to Peradeniya Sation, as you have to change trains here in any case if traveling from Kandy.

The train was very full, with no seats available, but I got to my destination, and had a pleasant journey.

Fares are very chaep Rs230

Type: Train
